Today’s verse instructs us that integrity will be the guide of our life. If we don’t have it we’ll become lost and eventually destroyed. With it we become stable, sure and a guiding light to others. Remember that as we make the hard decisions in life, in line with God’s Word, we forge our integrity. As we stay true to His Word and stop compromising, our path ahead will become easier to navigate.

Integrity includes being honest and having strong moral principles but, to a Christian, it means so much more.
